6 November 1888
Prince Albert Victor has again been grated "leave of absence from his military duties," so that he may proceed to Copenhagen for the forthcoming Jubilee celebrations. When, it may be asked, will the young Prince be granted leave to continue his military duties and lean something at least of the "bookish theory," if not the setting of a squadron in the field?
The Prince is approaching a Field-Marshallship by the devious route of fox-hunting and scampering hither and thither all over the country from one country house to another. This is nit the way that soldiers are made. The present Emperor of Germany as amore familiar figure in barrack-rooms than in country houses when a subaltern.
